Fishing in the Stockhorn’s mountain lakes

With a little luck, it won’t take long for you to catch a fish you can be proud of.

Both of the mountain lakes on the Stockhorn – the Hinterstockensee and the Oberstockensee – are richly stocked with rainbow trout. Equipped with your one-day fishing permit, you are free to come and try your luck at catching them. For groups there is the possibility to rent fishing rods and buy baits in the middle station. Happy fishing!

Availability Today (Sunday) open

From May (once the snow has melted) to mid-November, fishing can take place every day.
